STATE

The Merit System Board recorded the recommended changes in the State Classification Plan, copies of which are attached hereto and made a part hereof.

DATE: June 7, 2006

TO: Rolando Torres, Jr., Commissioner
Department of Personnel

FROM: Elizabeth Van Marter, Director
Human Resource Management

SUBJECT: Change in the Classification Plan

DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION

The Department of Transportation requests the creation of a new title series for the Emergency Service Patrol Program (ESP). Staff from this program patrol State roadways and provide assistance to disabled motorists and others during emergency and accident situations. The Department utilizes existing highway and maintenance titles to perform these functions, but these titles do not accurately reflect the duties performed.

The Department of Transportation requests the entry level title in the series, Emergency Service Patrol Apprentice, be assigned to the non-competitive service. The Apprentice title will have no education or experience requirements. The Department of Transportation proposes a two (2) year apprenticeship period during which appointees will complete specific classroom and on-the-job training sufficient to prepare incumbents for the primary title. Competitive testing is not practical at the Apprentice level. The primary title requires a unique mixture of skills that are better acquired through a combination of on-the-job training and formal instruction. All other levels in the series will be assigned to the competitive service.

The Department of Transportation requests these appointments be processed as promotions pending examination with promotional salary calculations for employees whose movements represent an increase in class code. Movements between titles having the same class codes will be processed as lateral appointments with retention of existing salary and status. Incumbents promoted to non-competitive titles will be subject to a current working test period commencing with the processing of the personnel action.

The appropriate negotiations representatives are aware of and support this request. The bargaining units were established by the Office of Employee Relations.
